Brazilian-born artist, Melissa Meier, is internationally recognized for her evocative 3-dimensional installations, found-object sculptures, collages, and photography. Featured in this exhibition, Meier has created sculptural clothing hybrids, utilizing natural materials such as leaves, stones, fur, eggshells, wheat, rice, crystals, scales, sticks, feathers, pinecones, and shells.

Inspired by Brazilian Carnival and Native American skin-walkers, her wearable constructions blend female empowerment with self-created mythology, developed around the idea of ancient cultures of female warriors, exemplifying strength, beauty and unity of life lived in harmony with the elements.

Her warrior-women are breathtakingly sensual while radiating a searing combination of purity and power. The Melissa Meier: Becoming Nature exhibit costumes are developed into moveable, wearable sculptures that are brought to life, serving as independent sculptures and in their final documented form as archival fine art photographs.
